Looking for your best Fs, Fs, Fs, Fs and Fs regarding everyone's favourite (to use, or to moan about) language, C++. If you've got 'em, let me have 'em. The worst that can happen is you'll get a mention in the new book ...
The structure of my new book, Breaking Up The Monolith is pretty much decided, but the content is yet to be "made so". This is particularly the case with the phrasing of the "big questions" I'll be addressing. Lacking in what might kindly be termed linguistic creativity I thought I would instead try and scab some from you, gentle readers. I'm keen to hear from anyone with good or bad experiences with C++.
Let me illustrate with one of each type, to get you started:
Naturally, no one person will hold all of the above opinions. Indeed, I'm not at this point much interested in examining or debating any of the 5xFs that might be suggested, although I'll doubtless digest any arguments that may be brought forth in support. What I'm really looking for are clearly and succinctly expressed Fs, that tally with the material I'll be covering in the book, which would make bold points in the Preface.
Of course, I allow for the fact that some folks might mention ones that are outside the current scope of the book but that are sufficiently significant that I might amend the plan. :-)
Let rip ...
